NHS Improvement is responsible for overseeing foundation trusts, NHS trusts and independent providers. We offer the support these providers need to give patients consistently safe, high quality, compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable. By holding providers to account and, where necessary, intervening, we help the NHS to meet its short-term challenges and secure its future.

NHS Improvement is the operational name for the organisation that brings together Monitor, NHS Trust Development Authority, Patient Safety, the National Reporting and Learning System, the Advancing Change team and the Intensive Support Teams.

The Deputy Chief Pharmaceutical Officer is responsible for providing expertise, professional leadership, and policy guidance to support the delivery of the objectives of NHS Improvement with regards to hospital pharmacy services and medicines optimisation, with a specific focus on key priorities including special measures and 7 day services.

The provision of professional leadership and advice to a wide range of stakeholders will be a key part of this role. This requires working collaboratively with colleagues across the system, influencing and advising in order to improve quality and outcomes for patients.

The post holder will work as part of a broad leadership team, providing evidence based advice and guidance to the NHS and wider health and social care system. The post holder will also act as a deputy to the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer for England (appointed by NHS England).
